Hotspur Towers - Beware Pirates !
I was asked if I could do a 'read bite' on programmes, and the previous articles seemed to go down well. Being always happy to oblige the reader I then delved through the files before I wondered if you'd like something on 'Pirates.' Not a subject that I am too 'hot on' but this is what I came up with. Anyone having any other pics or info please feel free to pass it on.
Pirates have been around as long as official programmes and they were plentiful in the sixties, I remember regular warnings appearing in the official version across the years. They continue to thrive it seems as this one from 2011 demonstrates.
Those of you who read the recent 'Victorian saga' will know that as long ago as the 1890's Tottenham registered their Official programme to counter other sellers.
The one on the left is the real one, note the official heading (not always 100% to be trusted) the use of official photos and the real giveaway is the one in the center is a 'souvenir' programme.
Above three more programmes where the club did not see a penny. The Chelsea game is from 1965.
Left - The "Souvenir" programme from the Cup semi final - 1962.
The cockerel is a nice touch.
Below the real - Real Madrid programme in case your not sure besides the top picture contains the word 'Hotspurs.'
